Christchurch or Akaroa?

Jump to last reply

I' need some more advice about our planned 17-day trip to the South Island of New Zealand in November. (Thanks for your feedback on the initial plan, which we have subsequently revised.) The first 15 days we will be in Abel Tasmen NP (3 nights), Fox Glacier (2), Milford Sound (1), Arrowtown (2), Routeburn Track (3), Queenstown (2, on either side of the Routeburn trip), and Aoraki/Mt. Cook (2). We know we will be driving a lot, but we will also be hiking and kayaking a lot to make up for it--and seeing that amazing scenery.

We are left with 2 nights and 2+ days after we leave Mt. Cook and before our flight out at 8 pm on the last day. Here's my question: should we (1) drive directly to Christchurch and spend both nights there; (2) spend one or both nights in Akaroa; or (3) stop overnight somewhere along the way from Mt. Cook and spend only 1 night in Christchurch (or Akaroa)? Any suggestions for your favorite places to stay for the final 2 nights would also be much appreciated. Thanks!
